Event Details

The third Dgroups Peer Exchage session will take place on 15 July 2013 from 1600 to 1730 Amsterdam time. Two presentations will look at "Email forums for health and development professionals":

  • Angela Nash Mercado will share with us how the Knowledge Gateway (which uses the same underlying software as Dgroups) connects people working in health and development through email discussion forums;
  • Neil Pakenham Walsh will give us some insights on how Dgroups is used by HIFA 2015 (Healthcare Information For All by 2015) to promote the availability and use of essential healthcare information in low- and middle-income countries.
This is an open session for all with an interest in virtual communities and networks for heath and development, to discuss how to support communications, knowledge sharing and learning.
A facilitated Q&A will follow to allow participants to compare notes and foster peer learning.
After you have registered, in the following days you will receive an update regarding the online platform we will use for the meeting and how to join the virtual room.

Dgroups Foundation

Dgroups started in 2002 as a project of Bellanet/IDRC (Canada) in collaboration with the UK Department for International Development (DFID), the Institute for Connectivity in the Americas (ICA), the International Institute for Communication and Development (IICD), OneWorld, the Joint UN Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) and the UN Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA). As the number of partners increased,  it was agreed that an independent legal entity was needed to support the initiative.
In 2009, the Dgroups Foundation was established in the Netherlands as a non-profit foundation, which now comprises 18 full Dgroups Partners.
In July 2012, Dgroups counts 2136 active communities, with around 195.892 registered users. It delivers around 400.000 email messages each day, half of which are exchanged with and within African countries
